[SOLD] Pentax FA 24-90mm f/3.5-4.5 IF AL (Worldwide)

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax FA 24-90mm f/3.5-4.5 IF AL

Asking Price
$225 USD shipped

Item Location
Toronto, ON, Canada

Item Description
The FA 24-90 is very light and compact for a FF zoom of this range. It's well-regarded for its IQ.

No issues with the glass, very sharp stopped down and produces nice images. Focus is very fast, zippy even, on my K-7. Focuses to 50cm throughout the range, so gets good magnification at 90mm.

However, I've noticed is that at focal lengths longer than 50, the internal focusing sometimes gets jerky, almost as though the screw drive is a bit too strong. The image goes left and right a bit, and in some cases it's prevented from locking focus. Manual focus on this lens is very smooth and unaffected by the issue. Because of this, I'm selling for $125 less than what I paid for it. I've tried one other copy of this lens in a store and it behaved the same, so I'm not thinking it's an isolated thing. This wasn't disclosed to me by the previous owner, so your mileage may vary...

Original front cap (not shown), hood, aftermarket (but good) rear cap included. No box or paperwork.





Pics from the lens:



wide open at 90mm (focuses to 50cm)

PM replied. I'd like to add that while I will ship worldwide, I'd prefer someone with feedback here, or proof of feedback elsewhere, especially to countries where I can't verify your address via paypal.
Thanks!
